Presented for sale is a charming 19th century oil on canvas depicting the Isaac Edge Windmill in Jersey City, in the manner of Granville Walter Perkins, 1830 – 1895. The mill was located in lower Jersey City set on a pier that jutted out into the Hudson River at the corner of Montgomery and Greene Streets. The painting presents as an idyllic landscape with people engaged in various activities in the background.

This mill was a replica of one owned by Isaac Edges, Sr. of Derbyshire, England, who sent his son Isaac Edges, Jr. an exact duplicate replete with everything needed to erect the structure. Meant as a gift to his son for his success in settling in a new world, the mill was completed in 1815. The mill became a landmark for passing ships and its production was very successful. After being moved a few times, it was finally destroyed by fire in 1870.

The painting is marked on the verso as shown and dated 1880. It is set into its original giltwood and composition frame. It is in very good condition with minor age-related crazing and a small patch to the canvas on the back. The frame is in very good condition with age-related patina to the gilt.

Size of Frame: 25 ½” Width by 19 ½” Height

Size of Image: 19 ½” Width by 13 ½” Height.
